It seems that running an SSH task on a remote Linux server outputs everything on the same line.
The logs are missing line breaks which otherwise output fine when using an external SSH client.
Is the plugin mangling newlines?
I have a bit of clumsy workaround for this. Use carriage return instead of newlines. ( ms-dos vs unix line ends )
Here is a bit of sample code I use in my scripts:
echo -e "\r" [ -w /data/ ] && echo -e "script\t`date '+%d-%b-%Y %H:%M:%S'`\t /data is writeable\r" && cd /data [ -w /data/ ] || echo -e "script\t`date '+%d-%b-%Y %H:%M:%S'`\t /data is NOT writeable\r" [ -w /data/ ] || exit 1
It doesn't look very nice but it works for my testers on reading log-output. It looks like this:
simple 22-Jul-2013 13:42:41 Command: stdout = script 22-Jul-2013 13:42:42 /data is writeable
Hope this helps you.
